As education editor of The Sunday Times I am fed up with hearing about Generation Snowflake. Here at last is a book that disproves that label. I loved reading these stories of 50 teenagers who have literally changed the world for the better through their efforts. Hurrah for the next generation - Generation Sunshine! -- Sian Griffiths, Education and Families Editor, Sunday Times
This book is positive, impactful and vital. By reading this, you really can change the world. -- Eve Ainsworth, author of 7 Days
A beautiful tribute to the power of youth and their driving passion to see and make change in the world. What we gain from these active young voices is that hope, not despair is on the move, and one small change sparks another. -- Amie Williams, Co-Founder and Executive Director, GlobalGirl Media
A step by step guide to changing the world, what's not to love? A great book for any teen wanting to turn passion into action. -- Dr Pooky Knightsmith, Mental Health Advisor, Author Speaker & Educator, and Vice Chair of Children and Young People's Mental Health Coalition
'Inspirational' is an over-used word, but this really is an inspirational book! Modest, practical and passionate, these stories should be given to every young person who has a heart and is wondering how to use it. -- Nick Luxmoore, school counsellor and author
This book is truly an amazing read. It tells the beautiful stories of some absolutely astounding teenagers making the most of life. As a teenager myself these stories fill me with hope and show me that no matter how hard life can get as a teen, there's always a light at the end of the tunnel. And that even though sometimes you feel small and insignificant, You can make a difference. -- Ben Roots, aged 17
What an inspiration! If this doesn't get you dreaming, thinking and doing something about a better world, nothing will! The bold testimonies honestly help you realise how mighty the power of one is. These true stories really have a magic and force that is radical and captivating! -- Rachael Dellaca, WA, Australia, aged 17
I think this book is amazing as we always hear about the terrible acts of teenagers and forget about the good things that we can do. It reminds us that we have the power to make a difference even when people say we are too young to understand. I'm inspired to make a change. -- Seren, Age 13
I hope that this book will be widely read by teenagers. I think it shows that, whatever life throws at them especially in what are often such vulnerable and uncertain years, they are not alone; that there is always a way forward, and that there are others out there like them who know what they are going through. I hope this moving book will inspire other teenagers to feel better about themselves and encourage them to harness their passion and determination into a real force for good in this often difficult world. -- Zelda West-Meads, Counsellor and therapist and Agony Aunt for You magazine, Mail on Sunday
You Can Change The World showed me that I can achieve anything I set my mind to and I don't need to wait until I'm an adult to get started. It is full of inspirational teens and each of their individual stories has a great message behind it. Plus, there are fantastic tips for how to follow in their footsteps. -- Ella Plasett, age 14, London, England
A fantastic book that captures the work of young changemakers. Powerful and inspiring, a catalogue of real role models. It will make you want to chase your passion. After all what better cause is there? -- Matteo Bergamini, CEO & Founder, Shout Out UK
Now I know that there are actually quite a lot of people who realise and act. -- Olivia Cooper, aged 14
